Frequently Asked Questions

Are Dietz lanterns still made?

Dietz lanterns are still being made outside of the U.S.A.

How old is my Dietz Lantern?

To help determine the month and year of manufacturing on most Dietz lanterns made between 1915 and 1956, you will be looking at the "M" or "S" production date. This date is usually located under the patent dates, most commonly found on the upper part of the air tube to the right of the fuel cap or on the center air tube on Hot Blast lanterns.

"M" denotes Dietz New York City "Main," factory#1, while "S" indicates Dietz Syracuse Factory #2, which is then followed by the month and year of production.

Stamping patent and production dates into Dietz lanterns was discontinued in 1956, coinciding with the establishment of the Hong Kong factory.

What is the brightest Dietz Lantern?

The brightest Dietz Lantern is the Dietz #76 Original Oil Burning Lantern and the Dietz #80 Hurricane Lantern.
